Take Action in Canada/Passez à l’action

September 2020: The US government is considering a request to allow the release of genetically engineered (GE or genetically modified) American chestnut trees into US forests. The GE trees could spread from US forests into forests in eastern Canada. Researchers say they will also ask the Canadian government to approve planting this GE tree in Canadian forests.

Alerte : On veut disséminer des châtaigniers d’Amérique génétiquement modifiés aux É.-U. et au Canada

Le gouvernement des É.-U. étudie une demande en vue d’autoriser la dissémination de châtaigniers d’Amérique OGM dans les forêts des É.-U. Les arbres OGM risquent de se propager dans les forêts de l’est du Canada.  Les chercheurs disent qu’ils demanderont aussi au gouvernement du Canada l’autorisation de planter ces arbres OGM dans des forêts canadiennes.

The Canadian Biotechnology Action Network (CBAN) runs a campaign in Canada to stop GE trees.

The Canadian Biotechnology Action Network (CBAN) brings together 16 groups to research, monitor and raise awareness about issues relating to genetic engineering in food and farming. CBAN members include farmer associations, environmental and social justice organizations, and regional coalitions of grassroots groups.

CBAN is a project on MakeWay’s shared platform, which provides operational supports, governance, and charitable expertise for changemakers. The shared platform enables more time and money to go towards achieving greater impact. MakeWay is a national charity that builds partnerships and solutions to help nature and communities thrive together.
